Hidden casualties of war

Tonight, Marsha and I spoke at an event, and afterwards a man approached me, because he wanted to learn more about Lilac Springs.  As we spoke, his wife, a sophisticated and poised woman who appeared to be in her late 70’s, remained seated.  During the course of our conversation he said “My wife’s dad just disappeared in World War II when she was just a little girl.  You know, ever since the time of his disappearance she scans the faces of all the soldiers that are shown in magazines, on TV, and in the newspapers; she is always trying to find his face.”

How sad; that poor little girl has been working hard and searching for over 70 years.
